Howard Jones The OBON song (One Britain One Nation) (85* d) RE: The OBON song (One Britain One Nation) 25 Jun 21

OBON was founded by a Sikh who came to this country at the age of 6 and whose parents were factory workers. He apparently wanted to celebrate what he calls "this brilliant country" and the opportunities it gave him. I think we can probably assume he is well aware of racism and imperialism.

The song is dire, but the intention is good. He has said "I think we need to celebrate that and create this spirit of oneness and togetherness, and showcase that we're all one people of this country regardless of where you're from." These are sentiments that those on the left usually agree with. The government's backing has probably done the organisation no favours.
